More Storms Ahead For Dundrum Sea Wall September 5, 2011| Posted by | Comment on More Storms Ahead For Dundrum Sea Wall Comment

THE NSPCC is challenging fearless people in Co Down to plunge 10,000ft out of a plane this autumn to help raise vital funds for the children’s charity.

Solo or tandem jumps are available year-round and anyone over the age of 16 and in good health can jump from one of 20 different sites across the UK, including Coleraine.

NSPCC community fundraiser, Marina Hoey, said, “We would like to see as many daredevils as possible make the bold leap to help support the NSPCC’s work locally.

“The money they raise through sponsorship will help support our frontline staff to continue working with some of the most at risk children and families in Northern Ireland and provide many disadvantaged young people with a far happier future.  It will also help the NSPCC to develop its national helplines – ChildLine for young people and the NSPCC Helpline for concerned adults – so that we can be there for vulnerable children and young people wherever they may be in the UK.”

A charity skydive is ideal for individual thrill-seekers looking to test their nerve, or for groups of friends, family and even colleagues as a corporate team-building challenge.  People can sign up year-round and will receive full training from a qualified instructor, fundraising support, a range of fantastic materials and a certificate upon completion of their jump.

No experience is necessary, and your training and jump are FREE if you raise a minimum sponsorship of £395.
